About this Live Yes! Connect Group:
My vision for this support network is to have a growing group that offers support, education, encouragement, connection, and empowerment for those who have arthritis and their family members. I want everyone to feel welcomed, support each other, ask questions, and stay engaged. I encourage everyone who attends these meetings to find ways to become more involved with the Arthritis Foundation and use all the resources that are available!
My name is Lucyanne and I recently started volunteering with the Arthritis Foundation in the summer of 2018. I have volunteered in my community for most of my life working with different types of groups (nursing homes, soup kitchens, community centers) and holding different types of leadership positions (project leader, project coordinator). I decided to become involved with the Arthritis Foundation because it's mission, vision, and goals really touched my heart and inspired me. I have family members with arthritis, and I have seen the impact that it has on daily living and activities. For the past few months I have been volunteering at various events and projects where the Arthritis Foundation has needed help. I was able to see first-hand the dedication that the Arthritis Foundation put into fulfilling it's mission and I quickly realized I wanted to have a bigger part in that. I decided that I wanted to lead a project that is engaging, informational, and will be a supportive environment for those with arthritis- and here I am! I am a scientist and I have a strong interest in public health and community health engagement programs. In my spare time I love to travel, be active with my dog Lola, and read (I like to stay up-to-date with everything related to scientific/medical discoveries!)
